Topic tags/keywords: question

I need to trim about 1/2” from my corian counter top to fit in a 30” stove. Can I use a dremel sawmax to make the cut? Has anyone tried this?

I haven’t tried it but to cut Corian you need carbide tools. Why wouldn’t you use a router with a carbide bit?

Corian has a high mineral content, besides the binder, and will dull non carbide bits very quickly. Also be aware of the dust created as it is abrasive.

Well then good luck!
How are you going to keep a straight line (I have never seen a Dremel Sawmax) so I really don’t know!

a nice cut, caulking and done

Hi,

Thanks, I’m a little apprehensive about cutting the corian counter and when I figure out how to do it. I’ll be very careful.
